Lets Go Mets! David Wright hit his first home run at Citi Field since 2014 and first to the opposite field since 2013. Logan Verrett gave up a three-run homer to Hector Olivera. Wright and Murphy got 4 of the Mets 6 hits. The bats are starting to sleep again, time to wake them up! Luckily the Nationals were beaten by the Orioles and the Mets lead stays at six and a half games.

My view of David Wright's HR

I just happened to have my phone out as David hit his homer to right field. It was good to see David hit one, it's been awhile since the last one in San Francisco. I've got a lot of good seats to finish out the regular season. Last night I was just across the barrier that separates the Delta Club seats from the Metropolitan box seats, in Row 12. Tonight I was in Delta Club Row 14, the only difference was the barrier, steps and $19. At least the Delta Club seats are padded and you have access to the Delta Club inside. And you never know who you may meet!

Before the game while talking to usher Steve, John Franco walks up the steps towards us. Steve stops him and starts telling Franco my story of moving from CA to NY and being at every home game. John shook my hand and posed for a picture. I told John Franco my story of my being at a Mets/Giants game at Candlestick Park and Franco getting Barry Bonds to hit into a game ending double play comebacker. While walking to the visitor's clubhouse that was located down the right field line, I yelled something like "Nice Job" and he threw the ball to me over everyone crowded along the stands edge. The next year I was at another Mets visit to Candlestick and I happened to get close enough to Franco to have him sign the ball that he had thrown to me the year before. It still sits in my den.

Before the game the Mets acknowledged some of it's employees by introducing them on the scoreboard while standing behind home plate with Mr. Met and a Mets coach. Tonight one of my Citi Field family got Employee of the Month! Max is a supervisor in the parking lot. He helps his team direct traffic into and out of the stadium every game. Because he sees me coming and going every night we have plenty of time to talk about the Mets and such. A great guy.
